Our study reports 10 observations of CPA epidermoid cysts, treated in our department(More)
Aneurysmal bone cysts (ABC) are benign tumors of the bones, formed by multiple cysts filled with blood and eroding the bone. They are rarely located at the skull. We report a case of a right temporal ABC in a 5-year-old girl. On admission, the physical examination showed a tough and fixed tumor, with no inflammatory signs nor vascular characteristics.

The authors report one case of multiple and bilateral cerebral hydatic cysts in a eight years old child. The disease was revealed by cranial hypertension signs, with homonymous hemianopsia. The diagnosis was based on the cerebral CT scan, and confirmed by surgical operation which was performed in two stages. The evolution was uneventful.
The intramedullary localization of schwannoma is rare, corresponding to 0.3% of all intraspinal tumors. We report a case of intramedullary schwannoma without symptoms suggestive of neurofibromatosis. This patient presented with symptoms of spinal compression. Total removal of the tumor was achieved. The literature is reviewed about of this rare localization(More)
